When an interior designer takes on a restaurant design project, whether new installation and renovation, choosing dining chairs is one of the most important decisions they'll make as the comfort of diners is of paramount importance. Comfortable guests are happy guests. In addition, dining chairs in restaurants must also be durable and made with ease of care in mind—resulting in a happy establishment owner.
